Well, at least we know it’s coming relatively soon… right?

We just recently reported that Muramasa Rebirth DLC was hitting Japan starting on the 7th, but now we have a bit more information about the North American release – which is apparently happening early net year through Aksys.

Like in Japan, the first piece of DLC will be “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata”; this episode featuring a cat/lady cross named Okoi who is tasked with delivering a prized tea set to the shogun. Her foes are the only thing standing in her way, but even that’s not much of a threat to someone with such unique abilities. Okoi uses her claws as well as special powers to combat foes, with upgrades available along the way via the skill tree. She also has the ability to fuse with her companion Miike, transforming into something much more powerful than either of them alone.

This first episode of DLC will feature new enemies as well as the ability to use Okoi in the main storyline. Three more DLC episodes are due out as well, though we’ll have more information as we get a more solid release date on this first one.

    Looks like it’s time to go back and replay Muramasa so it’s fresh in my memory. Again.

    I haven’t played muramasa yet. Is it a must buy?
